Troop 1409 Scouts!
Here is a service hour opportunity.

Please contact Scout Master Roger Gray regarding the opportunity and how participate.

San Marcos’ sacred springs will reawaken when over one hundred Native American powwow dancers and participants arrive for the much anticipated Sacred Springs Powwow & Indian Market, held on Saturday, October 6, 2010, from 10:00 AM until 7:00 PM at Aquarena Center, 921 Aquarena Springs Drive, San Marcos, Texas. The event is sponsored by a local Native American nonprofit organization, Indigenous Cultures Institute.

The 2012 powwow will feature Keetoowah Cherokee champion dancer David Hoskins as Head Man Dancer, Comanche renowned traditional singer Lance Tahchawwickah as Head Southern singer, and Texas-fame Eagle Point as the Northern Drum. A major Indian Market will be held in conjunction with the powwow, offering the largest gathering of Native American arts, crafts, and food vendors ever assembled in San Marcos.

Food booths will include popular Native foods such as fry bread tacos, healthy buffalo burgers, roasted corn, turkey legs, barbecued meat, and buffalo stew. Arts and crafts include a large selection ranging from Southwest jewelry, pottery, moccasins, Native dolls, stone oil lamps, breast plates and other relic replicas, to fine art paintings, weavings, and sculptures.

Indigenous Cultures Institute organized the local Native community to provide education and information about Native Americans, particularly from this area, southern Texas, and northern Mexico.  For more information, visit www.IndigenousCultures.org.
